What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a national campaign occurring on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as a way to begin the giving season and contribute charitable donations to nonprofits. This year, Giving Tuesday is on December 3, 2019. By participating in #givingtuesday, you can spread awareness and give back to non-profit organizations like La Plaza.

This year, La Plaza is participating in #GivingTuesday on December 3, 2019, and we are counting on your support! 

We set a big goal: Raise $10,000.

Your support will directly impact our educational summer and yearlong youth programs. Your support will also impact recently immigrated families through the challenging/necessary task of acquiring basic needs in Indianapolis.

$25 will provide program supplies to one session of La Plaza’s LILY (Leadership Institute for Latino Youth) summer program designed to help 9th – 12th grade Latino students gain the skills to graduate from high school, succeed in college, career, and life.

$50 will provide program supplies to one session of La Plaza’s Summer Discovery program designed for students entering 1st – 6th grade to prevent summer learning loss while encouraging positive personal development and healthy living.

$100 will provide two weeks of grocery assistance to a family of four.

$250 will provide winter coats, hats, and gloves to a family of four (two adults and two children).

Whether you donate $5 or $500, every little bit helps. We hope that you will consider supporting La Plaza this year.
